History of Hot Rods by HG™
a farm boy growing up in small town ND Harlan began taking apart old lawn
mowers and getting them running again. Neighbor boys brought their scooters,
go carts and motorcycles to him to get running. Later on it was the old
trucks and cars to keep them going.
After building his first 450 hp 390 Ford for his 64 2dr Galaxy for around
$450 using lots of used parts, tri power manifold and cast headers, others
brought projects to him. Building other big block Fords, then
some Mopars, customizing a 70 Challenger . . .
. . . and building some custom motorcycles
such as his 45 Harley Trike followed.
Some racing of snowmobiles, (we have snow in
the North Country) dirt bikes and other stuff followed.
In '76 wife and kids came on the scene which
put a halt to the personal toys, so shoes and food became priorities. Still,
several custom motorcycles and cars for others were built.
Always in touch with the auto scene HG went
at it again in 90's starting with his dads old 72 Chevrolet C-10. A simple
restoration turned into a full-blown custom. Chassis mod's such as
independent rear suspension (86 T-Bird), lowered from tube "A" arms, LT-1
350 with computer, 700-R modified for racing, hydraulic tip front clip and
box, 3" chopped top and custom dash to mention a few things that people
hadn't seen before.
Today Hot Rods by HG™ is located on
a rural farm setting with a fully equipped shop, computers, Internet and
transport equipment. A love for cars and seeing them fully functional for
others to enjoy is the main motivation behind the business. The main purpose
is to provide a service to connect projects with people who will complete
them or have us complete them.
